DataTableReader.GetFloat Method

Gets the value of the specified column as a single-precision floating point number.

Namespace:  System.Data
Assembly:  System.Data (in System.Data.dll)

public override float GetFloat(
	int ordinal
)

Parameters

ordinal
Type: System.Int32

The zero-based column ordinal.

Return Value

Type: System.Single
The value of the column.

Implements

IDataRecord.GetFloat(Int32)

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

The index passed was outside the range of 0 to FieldCount - 1.

DeletedRowInaccessibleException

An attempt was made to retrieve data from a deleted row.

InvalidOperationException

An attempt was made to read or access a column in a closed DataTableReader.

InvalidCastException

The specified column does not contain a single-precision floating point number.

No conversions are performed; therefore the data retrieved must already be a single-precision floating point number or must be coercible to a single-precision floating point number.

Call IsDBNull to see if there are null values before calling this method.

The following example displays the contents of the column numbered 2 within the passed-in DataTableReader. If the value the column within a particular row is null, the code displays the text <NULL>. If the data within the column is not of the correct type, the example displays an error message for each row.

private static void PrintColumn(DataTableReader reader)
{
    // Loop through all the rows in the DataTableReader 
    while (reader.Read())
    {
        if (reader.IsDBNull(2))
        {
            Console.Write("<NULL>");
        }
        else
        {
            try
            {
                Console.Write(reader.GetFloat(2));
            }
            catch (InvalidCastException)
            {
                Console.Write("Invalid data type.");
            }
        }
        Console.WriteLine();
    }
}
